Whitney Paige in her 5 day vibrant cleanse but putting a more raw twist to it.
Dinner for the first day is Tomato Soup with Grilled Avo Sandwiches.
We made a raw tomato soup version and used our raw onion bread with an herby almond spread.
Ingredients: serves 4
2 lbs Roma tomatoes
1 garlic clove
1 celery stalk
1/4 cup onion
1 cup soaked sundried tomatoes, save the soaking water
1/2 cup cashews, soaked at least 1 hour, drain, rinse, and drain, or hemp seeds, no need to soak
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup fresh basil, divided saving some to garnish with fresh leaves
Directions: add everything to the high speed blender using soup cycle including 1 cup of the tomato soaking water.
Tomatoes release the lycopene when heated. The high speed blender gets warm enough to release it and cool enough to stay raw.
